1,071. Pouring a Cup

153:12 When a woman is a niddah, she may not pour a glass of wine for her husband in his presence or bring it to him and place it on the table before him. She may also not make his bed in his presence, though when she is not in his presence, everything is permitted even though he knows that she did it. The wife may not draw even cold water for her husband to wash his face and hands.

153:13 Just as the wife may not pour her husband a drink, he is not permitted to pour for her. Not only that, he is not permitted give his wife her own cup of wine, not even a cup over which a bracha like kiddush is recited.
